“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

The Mooring is one of my favorite places to eat in Newport. The location right on the waterfront is outstanding. The food is excellent as is the service. The prices are a little steep, but no different from any other restaurant in a resort community.

“Loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Absolutely loved this restaurant. This was a recommendation by our B&B and it couldn't have been better. The stuffed lobster was out of this world. If you go, you have to try the donuts!! Oh my, those just melt in your mouth. I could have just eaten those for dinner and gone home happy.

“If you like oysters....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

Stopped in for 'happy hour' at the raw bar: 1/2 price on all raw bar items. Exceptional oysters--choice of 6 different ones. Chose 4 types from New England areas: fabulous. Served w/mignonette, and cocktail sauce, plus lemon. Heavenly. Bartender is terrific, too!
